  1. Feb 14, 2005, 5:12 PM - UK paint suggestions / Painting tutorial... #1

    Just wondering if anyone can point me in the right direction for paint for a Boba helmet in the UK? Halfords or similar, I assume - But which specific shades? If anyone knows off the top of their head, I'd appreciate it.
    Also, I've found a few ex-tutorials on here... I say "Ex" because all the images to go with the text have disappeared, or all the links in the tutorial are 404ing now.

    Am I missing one up-to-date and working link somewhere?

    Thanks!

    www.starwarshelmets.com Go to the "tutorials" link and you will find "StevetheSwede"s tutorial that he did painting Jez's helmet. A great resource and a method that I wound up using on my own helmet.

    Rev, you wont find anything at Halfords (been there done that ) give hanhunter a PM he painted an excellent MSH in the rotj scheme. For my lid i used Humbrol dark green for the dome (not entirly accurate but looks good enough for me), hunter green (B&Q) for the back, sorry cant remember what red i used and the upper cheek i mixed useing printers ink and dryers (advantage of working at a printers).
    Good luck
